Samorost 2 is a strange game. Aliens have stolen your dog and your task is to recover Rover from the aliens' asteroid. There are a bunch of strange puzzles to solve, which together with the visuals and music make the game feel a bit like a cartoon version of Myst ...
There's a free version by way of a teaser, or for $9.90 you can buy another 5 levels.
You can also try out the original Samorost (where you have to divert a rogue asteroid from hitting your own home asteroid by solving another bunch of odd puzzles).
Incidentally, the publisher of Samorost and Samorost 2, Amanita Design, have also made an animation for the song "Plantage" by Danish sensation "Under Byen". Small world, isn't it? (Just like Samorost's).
